Katie Couric Gushes Over Engagement

Posted Wednesday September 4, 2013 11:05 AM GMT

She’s always been a resilient woman, and even after Katie Couric lost her husband Jay Monahan to cancer back in 1998, she kept up hope that she’d find love again.

In a new interview, the “Katie” host chats about her recent engagement to John Molner, though the East Hampton beach proposal was a bit awkward.

"He said that there was a reason he'd brought me there to the beach, and that he loved me and was committed to me, and I said, 'Yeah, I know that, you didn't have to bring me here to tell me that.’ Finally he said, 'Couric, I'm trying to propose to you,' and I was stunned. It took me a while to say yes, because I was so confused!"

Of her forth coming marriage, Couric shared, "I knew that I wanted this. I made it a priority, and I pursued it with some purpose."
